Pet Heaven

"To anyone who has ever loved and lost a pet."

There's a place beyond the rainbow
That God prepared with care
So when our pets must leave us
We'll know that they are there.

It is a special sanctum
Where they can rest and play,
Knowing we will claim them
Again some joyous day.

Our bond will be renewed
Just as it was before;
The undying love of a pet
You cannot ask for more.

I pray for such a Heaven,
For in my heart I know
Wherever He does take them
That's where I want to go.
